I have owned Mercedes, BMW, yet this new Lexus IS 250 AWD has made more "jaws drop" than any of my previous luxury cars. The body style is simply stunning from front to back. The interior reeks of class and luxury, with rich leather, wood, and chrome appointments. The transmission is flawless, the ride is quite, and the car handles better than any BMW I have owned. The new voice activated navigation system is the best I have seen. Simply an amazing car.
